Joint UN Programme of Support on AIDS (2022-2026) for Liberia
14 February 2022
The Joint United Nations Programme of Support on AIDS in Liberia 2022–2026 (JUPSA) is the United Nations’ strategic document that will guide its work in support of Liberia’s HIV Response. This document will help the UN to be more strategic and coordinate its support in a more efficient and harmonized manner.
The JUPSA is strongly anchored on the Unified Budget, Results and Accountability Framework 2022–2026 (UBRAF), which globally is the UN’s primary tool for HIV prioritization, strategic and joint planning, implementation, and accountability, and is also aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework 2020–2024 and the National HIV Strategic Plan 2021–2025. The UN will contribute to Liberia’s Vision of “An AIDS-free Liberia, with Zero new infection, Zero AIDS-related death and Zero AIDS-related stigma and discrimination by 2030”, part of the Global AIDS Strategy 2021-2026’s Goal of Ending AIDS by 2030as part of the Sustainable Development Goals.
The JUPSA will be implemented through the Joint United Nations Team on AIDS (JUNTA), which is the Inter-Agency Task Team from cosponsoring agencies of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS). The Joint Team in Liberia is composed of 9 agencies (ILO, UNDP, UNESCO, UNFPA, UNHCR, UNICEF, UN Women, WFP & WHO) with FAO and OHCHR also represented in the Joint Team, and UNAIDS serves as the Chair of the Joint Team.
